A little suggestion, please
 
Hi to everybody!
I īm a young Italian teacher. Since in Italy you can teach in different schools (You have to reach 18 hours of work) I actually work in two of them. Now one of them asked me to teach in more classes, so I have to leave the other school. BUT! But I have a wonderful relationship with my students and I īd like to tell them that I have to leave their classes without hurting them.
Have you any suggestions?!
Has it happened to you something similar?!

Thanks in advance! :D

Which is which?.... If you īre a family man,of course you īll go where the big pay is.. ībout your students, there īs nothing you can do ībout it-you have to earn for your family (if you are a family man)... you really have to choose-sometimes.

Hi Copa,
I īm an Italian teacher too. I can īt understand why you have to leave your job: are you a supply teacher? Are you teaching in two schools with less than 18 hours a week?
I can help you more if I understand your situation.

Ciao.

I know the same feeling. I have an adult class where the students have chosen and stayed with me for three years. I have to get another job from January because there isn īt enough work out there to make good money (the class I īm teaching is okay money but because the other job is full-time, I won īt be able to teach it anymore....). I īm going to feel really bad when I tell them......

Thanks to all for your suggestions and support.

 
@ReddBurns I īm not really a family man... since 1) I īm a woman 2) I have no family at the moment! :-)
 

@ MaestraFrancy
Ciao! :D Yep! I’m a supply teacher. In the first school I taught for 10 hours. In the second one for 5 hours. Now the first school asked me to teach to other two classes. So I’d have more than 18 hours. Impossible! L Moreover the two timetables would overlap, even more since I have another job too. I hope to have been clearer now. Thanks to you too for the help! ;-)
 
@Dareka I completely understand you too! I feel like a betrayer! :-(

I too work in the Italian state system .. but I think the problem is a more universal one .. no? ..

All I can say is that the next teacher will win the students over and carry on where you left off .. it īs a sad part of the job .. I have met so many wonderful people through teaching just to say goodbye to them at the end of the course ..  I think a teacher needs to harden to it as part of the job .. 

You need to earn money at the end of the day ... unless teaching is your hobby, of course ..

regards, Julian ..
